Thankful to be a Mom

With Thanksgiving approaching I have been counting my blessings. I am thankful for so many things my family, a job, health but I think this year I am most thankful to be a mom. Being a mom has enriched my life in a way I could have never imagined. People are right when they say this is the hardest job in the world. It really is but at the same time nothing that is truly valuable is ever easy. I must admit I rarely get to sleep late as my two are up by 7 even on the weekend. Meals are a three ring circus. I haven't been to the movies in 2 years. I do not have time to read books. I have changed thousands of dirty diapers, been puked on,and wiped many snotty noses in the last 3 1/2 years but I have also received thousands of hugs, kisses, and smiles. It is the love for your children that keeps you going day after day. I thank God every day for my two.
I hope you will also take time this Thanksgiving to count your many blessings.

I agree that kids are wonderful but very hard work.
